Shutesbury photographer and organic cookbook author Leslie Cerier’s grandmother painted copies of Impressionist paintings by Monet, Degas, Renoir and Cezanne.

“Her apartment on the beach was decorated with her beautiful artwork,” Cerier says, “ and those paintings live inside of me.”

Like the Impressionists, Cerier says, she’s passionate about light, water and landscapes.

“My photography is a reflection of the peaceful energy I find in the woods. Living in the moment, I capture beauty as I click the shutter.” Continue reading

Red and Gold Leaves Impressionistic Nature Photography

Red and Gold Leaves by Leslie Cerier. This is a fine art photograph print that looks like an impressionist painting.

Our staff at Healthcare Art Consulting really enjoyed collaborating with Leslie; she is wonderful to work with and was very professional. Her artwork helps enhance a calming environment for patients to enjoy during their treatment.

–  Sarah Beth Joynar, President of Health Care Art Consulting LLC, which bought Red and Gold Leaves by Leslie Cerier printed on canvas, 60″x40″, for the new Oncology Wing in Charleston area Medical Center in West Virginia in 2014

Light. Water. Transformation.

When I take my camera into the woods, I feel my connection with the forest. It’s like meditating – a way to get back to my own true nature. The sun calls me to a particular spot and I click the shutter when I see that rich, afternoon light … dancing light. Most of these photographs are taken within walking distance of my Western Massachusetts home. They are a celebration of New England seen through the eye of my heart. My work is about inspiration and healing – about being so present in the moment that everything vibrates and shines. These photographs are about sun light. I see perfection in nature – patterns – artistic jewels that reveal themselves. Continue reading
